London Undercurrents

Holland Park Press, based in Malmesbury, are publishing a rather special poetry collection in March 2019: London Undercurrents, the hidden histories of London’s unsung heroines, north and south of the river by Joolz Sparkes and Hilaire.

These two London-based female poets have each contributed poems inspired by the hidden histories of women past and present in their respective neighbourhoods Islington and Battersea.

As Joolz and Hilaire put it: There are thousands of women, extraordinary, ordinary, famous or forgotten who have plenty to say and deserve to be heard.

The authors were mentored by Jacqueline Saphra and received research and development funding from the Arts Council England.

London Undercurrents, ISBN 9781907320828, 152 pages, £10, $16, will be published by Holland Park Press on 28 March.
